Show me something in red, white and blue and I immediately think of summer. Warm evenings outside with family and friends. Twigs snapping in a bonfire. Roasted marshmallows. Shorts and T-shirts. And most of all.. laughing and feeling the stress of the world roll off my shoulders.And this summer, this crochet flag wine cozy is coming along for all the fun!
This little cutie combines four of my favorite things: Flags, my favorite wine cozy pattern and my favorite flower design. The 4th? Wine, OF COURSE! One of my favorite things to do is to get together with three of my favorite ladies for a girls night. We bring homemade snacks for dinner and bottles of wine to share.
We laugh around the dining room table, catching up on kids, husbands, boyfriends, and anything else that’s best shared amongst good friends. We stay up much too late and laugh until we cry. And when the evening is done, we vow to do it again soon, but with busy lives, months and sometimes seasons pass before we meet again.
But this summer is looming ahead with all sorts of possibilities and this crochet flag wine cozy is just the perfect thing to take along to the next get together with family or friends.
